We had reported last week that Meagan Good was a frontrunner for a lead role in a Whitney Houston biopic. Heck, the girl was approached by Whitney herself! So why wouldn’t she get the role if that is what Houston would have wanted?
Well The Daily Mail is saying that RiRi, Vivica A. Fox, Jordin Sparks, Jennifer Hudson AND Willow Smith are being considered to play a role of Whitney Houston in a biopic that is said to be taken control of by Clive Davis. And from what we are hearing, Clive wants to get this project going as soon as possible.
Willow Smith could certainly land the role as a young Whitney, but who would take on the young adult Whitney and the grown Whitney? There’s going to be some heavy competition for those roles. TRUST!
Last week, Meagan Good confirmed to E! Online that she was a frontrunner to play the late great saying, “We were fairly in the beginning stages … We were supposed to meet today, actually.”
No offense to RiRi because I love her to death, but I don’t think she could nail a Whitney Houston portrayal.
So who would you like to play Whitney Houston in a biopic?
